Late submissions and extensions

The University's policy on late submissions and extensions.

Late Submission of Work

  • Late coursework will only be accepted without penalty if you have provided a good reason and have been granted an extension in advance or exceptional circumstances prevented you from doing so.  See section below on Extensions.
  • Late coursework submitted without an authorised extension will be recorded as late and the following penalties will apply: 5 percentage points will be deducted for every calendar day or part thereof it is late, up to a maximum of 7 calendar days. After this time a mark of zero will be recorded.
  • These penalties follow the University's Taught Assessment Regulations, regulation 28.

Extensions and Learning Adjustment extra time

The University is committed to supporting you during your studies. Therefore, if there is a circumstance beyond your control that you feel may have an adverse impact on your academic performance, you can apply for a coursework extension and/or for special circumstances.

Extension requests (up to seven calendar days) and requests for extra time as part of a Learning Adjustment must be submitted via the dedicated Extensions and Special Circumstances (ESC) service.
